European Vacation II

Yesterday we arrived in Paris. As the post title implies, this is the second installment of Feiks go to Europe. In 2010 Mary and I were lucky to be able to spend ten days in London with Bryan and Kate. Last year we starting planning this trip, ten days in Paris.

We rented an apartment at 22 Avenue de l’Opera. It is situated halfway between the Louvre and the Opera House (about 3 blocks either direction). Mary couldn’t have found a better location. The apartment is also very nice. We did something similar in London and I am quite attached to renting an apartment vs. hoteling. This location is also quite a bit nicer than the flat in London.

After we unpacked, Mary and I went for a short walk, checked out the Opera house and then picked up a few groceries.

We went back, took a short nap and then all gathered ourselves for a walk to the Louvre. It is massive.
























We are planning at least a full day inside, so we kept going and walked along the Seine towards Notre Dame.












I remember the street vendors from my last trip even though that was quite a few years ago.












I am sure we’ll take the Metro may times, but for now we are just hoofing it. It is so much fun taking in the different neighborhoods walking through the city. We headed back, grabbed a bite to eat, a glass of wine and called it a day about ten.
